Originally from Ottawa, Ontario, Joseph comes to us with a classic case of an 'Easterner's love for the West Coast'. Now a crew member at Callaghan Country, he's living the dream as head chef at Journeyman Lodge, playing in the mountains by day and delighting guest palates by night. Joseph learned by osmosis the pleasures of hosting and cooking for large groups of family and friends from his Mom and Gramma. He would later move to Vancouver, British Colombia to become trained in French Classic Cuisine at the super hands-on, experienced based programs of VCC in Vancouver.
Joseph lives a simple life, Eat. Sleep. Work...and play outdoors (as in splitboarding, backcountry hiking, tennis, squash, camping), Repeat.
While at home, away from the rigors of fine dining kitchen life, Joseph enjoys to cooking hearty and healthy meals for friends and family. On a personal level he's a specialist in creating his own gluten-free meals. Joseph appreciates a full variety of foods but reserves the exotic flavours of Thai and Indian food as his favourites...there's that sense of adventure!
Callaghan Country is super grateful to have his easy going and adventurous outdoor spirit grounding all our food related services this season at Journeyman Lodge. Welcome aboard!
